GENIUS SCIENCE

Instilling in learners an understanding of biology, chemistry and physics is an audacious undertaking that few education centers have succeeded in, as one of the basic questions of epistemology that concerns the nature of scientific knowledge needs to be addressed.  Here at Genius, we endeavor to tackle this problem by arousing the curiosity of children, with topics ranging from the evolution of animals and plants over the geological timescale, to the design and fabrication of integrated circuits on silicon wafers.  We have over 200 scientific themes and 5,000 experiments that truly encapsulate the central concept of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).  In Genius classrooms, we have something for every child, no matter what early predilection he or she may display. 

 

Our teachers are all subject matter experts and well versed in the curriculum of international examinations such as IGCSE, A-Level and IB.  We understand the importance of perspective-taking, which is about being able to look at the subject matter from the point of view of the students.   It allows us to better explore a subject with the students and make learning much more effective and efficient with considerably less effort.

OUR APPROACH

Course structure designed to arouse the curiosity of children and prepare them for all future international exams. 

WE BELIEVE

Every one of our students has the potential to become a prominent medical professional, or a world-class researcher at the frontiers of science, and receive the most prestigious awards in their respective fields (Nobel prize, Wolf prize, Lasker prize, Edison award, etc.)

BIOLOGY

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES

Appreciating our place and responsibilities within the amazing biodiversity of the Earth

Developing students' understanding of characteristic ways in which biological scientists work, think and reason.

Developing students' understanding of how biological knowledge can be used in real-world applications and their impact on human wellbeing.

Helping students to emerge as scientifically literate citizens able to make informed decisions about biological issues in everyday life.

KEY BIOLOGY TOPICS

Structure and Function of Cells

Develop a better understanding of the structural and functional unit of all living organisms - Cell

Reproduction and Genetics

Learn how organisms reproduce and pass on their characteristics to their offspring.

Evolution and Natural Selection

Natural selection is a mechanism of evolution in which organisms that are more adapted to their environment are more likely to survive and pass on the genes that aided their success. 

Interactions between Organisms

Understand that each living organism has uniquely adapted to a particular habitat and developed specific relationships with other organisms in the same area.
